2:02 am
the regime syrian opposition leaders are in moscow for talks let's get more from artie's peter all of the story what is likely to come out of these meetings. well the two sides the syrian opposition and the russian side both have things they want to gain from this meeting today in moscow the syrian opposition are looking for russian help in trying to find a solution to the crisis in syria they say that they want to start a new chapter in syria in russian relations was the russian side are expected to call on the syrian opposition to bring about an end to violence in the country and to think more about the people of syria as opposed to any kind of regime change in the country so far in the eight months this crisis has continued at the u.n. suggest around three and a half thousand people have been killed so far well syria's expulsion from the
2:03 am
decision to suspend syria from of the arab league over the weekend just saw the russian foreign minister express russia's dismay at the decision calling it counterproductive to a peace to peace negotiations and suggesting that the shadowy hundred western governments had been behind the decision on the arab league to suspend syria from its membership. for syria has described the arab league's decision as illegitimate how has the legal started to that peter. well the arab league is meeting on wednesday where it's expected the rubber stamp will be put on that decision to suspend syria from the group now they've also put forward a plan to send a five hundred strong delegation into syria on a fact finding mission now that delegation would contain military personnel they are saying and syria has welcomed. sending this this fact finding delegation into
2:04 am
the country now in syria across syria we've seen protests from pro government protesters against the decision from the arab league to suspend them we saw the embassies of saudi arabia and qatar the scene for some of these protests saudi arabia and qatar two countries which voted to suspend syria from the group their embassies being targeted as well as protests across damascus and other places in syria where people believe that the decision is a wrong one and not one which will bring about peace in the country any time soon. there from moscow thank you. the king of jordan is the latest arab leader to join the chorus of disapproval over syria. to step down online journalist james corbett thinks it's unlikely i can stay on much longer. i really don't see a way for a side the assad government to anything in its current foothold clutch on the country given the way that things are unfolding. certainly russian or chinese over
2:05 am
truth in that area we would be i suppose helpful in this regard but i certainly don't know if it's going to make any fundamental difference in a same way that no amount of protest over what was taking place in libya really seem to be real about agenda and i think all this does is about light of the notion that there was ever any consideration for what the people of syria really want certainly we see we see that playing out right now with syria and with thousands of people who are protesting in in favor of the assad government exactly as we saw earlier this summer we saw hundreds of thousands potentially even more protesting in tripoli in support of the get off the government but that obviously had no effect on the rhetoric that was taking place in the west and now with this arab league suspension i think we see here a danger it's the moment where we're really and you perhaps an even a military intervention is definitely on the table. but russia has long been against intervention in syria and the former foreign minister of veteran diplomat
2:06 am
explains why they get a prima coffee says that this is a well that. i don't think the west is prepared to take this action with a the security council's but i think we're smarter now and at the time when the first security council resolution was adopted we will not adopt another resolution using vague terms which could be useful would utilize in these activities. nobody knows what libya is going to recover from chaos look at iraq for example it's been more than eight years and they still can stabilize a situation t.v. never stops supporting new cardinals fifteen dead thirty dead every day in iraq explosions and so on it could happen so regular people get used to it and i started thinking this is normal but it's killing us over eight and a half years of occupation there's been nothing you could do and libya's going to be even tougher so i don't think. we've had much success in. yes the full interview with former russian prime minister kelly cough is here and
2:07 am
just over an hour start. a new technocrat led governments in greece and italy are getting down to business to tackle their massive debts italy's prime minister designate says it's too early to determine how this country will cope with more crisis specialist was warning of sacrifices ahead non-theists trying to rally participants some want him to go once reforms are through or the former commissioner plans to stay on until the twenty thirteen election of the clock is ticking for greece new prime minister heading up a fifteen week mission because in most cases confidence votes on wednesday and says securing the next bailout is a priority that his country must stick with europe but business editor nick poole explores how the single currency is north of the some countries to ruins rather than riches it was supposed to bring peace and prosperity for all over
2:08 am
a while it did but now the euro is costing people jobs their pensions and even the democratic rights from the beginning the flaws were there for everyone to see the skeptics the economies of the likes of italy in greece which is different from germany in finland too regulated by one system optimism and idealism carried the new currency was all it was strong stable it was regulated in ways of german central banker might approve of very latest seeds of the problem greece italy portugal and spain now had their hands on a strong currency and could borrow against it before the interest rates they would have to pay would be much less so much more which is what they did italy currently has a debt to g.d.p. ratio around one hundred twenty percent greece is more than one hundred sixty hp. that's a bit like somebody with an income of twenty thousand dollars a year i mean thirty two thousand on their credit card they would bankrupt the banks one and many more money the flat screen t.v.
2:09 am
would be repossessed and would be a diet of cabbage and potatoes in the worst case. it's similar for a country but instead public to pay its cards and thousands of people forced out of jobs before greece and italy always had the possibility of give currency when times were that this had the effect of lowering total debt and of conferring a competitive advantage its products services labor became cheaper and this stimulated economic growth it also made people poorer as the money in their pockets was worth less but crucially it did not result in mass redundancies especially not imposed by a foreign power under a hard currency like the euro this option is no longer available to be indebted nations so instead they must not because they remain uncompetitive they cannot grow the worst of both worlds. the politicians fail to put a lid on greece and italy soaring borrowing the question now is whether the
2:10 am
economic hit squads can do any better financial expert max keiser is far from convinced saying that bankers behind the scenes are continuing to play the system. it's the night of the living dead and all of these zombie bankers we can't get rid of them you can't tell them they live to bank another day they are a plague around the world and certainly in europe there are no law actions but they're putting bankers in charge to bring about total banker domination as the world goes down a slippery slope into banker hell in place of the elected officials put in place i don't like the bankers and of course they work together they work with the central banks to keep the kids keeping interest rates near zero percent because this allows them to fund their speculations of zero cost they don't want to spend any money to borrow money to put the outrages of bets on the table and every time they lose a pair they impose more austerity measures every time they win
2:11 am
a bet they keep one hundred percent of the profits in the eurozone they have an opportunity to bring all the balance sheets of all the countries together and create new lending facilities like the f.s.f. which is a new five trillion euro lending facility and they want to build on that to create ten twenty trillion euro lending facilities because bankers get paid on how much debt they create their own mind the fact that the pay for the debt ultimately they have to impose more austerity measures more austerity measures more debt more fees for bankers more financial terrorism. it's my skies it is your host in twenty minutes time and r.t. but he and stacy take another side swipe at some of the efforts to stop the rot in the world according. well before then there were reports of torture and abuse on america's watch ten years on the taurus went on to bait prison and it's still going strong for widespread condemnation to close it also.
2:12 am
like this strange noise is creating a buzz. around the world investigates what it could mean and where it may be coming from a few minutes. police in oakland california have dismantled tents put up out of self-styled occupy protesters. three weeks ago the violent clashes which left iraq war veterans severely injured moving the current force the resignation of a top adviser to oakland's mayor saying the city is on the wrong side of the speech after the raid though the authorities allowed protesters to return as long as they didn't set up camp. right across america against social inequality and corporate greed almost two months now. we're here in downtown open for the occupy wall street protesters are marching back to the thought that was very think boston for which they were just hours ago now
2:13 am
we've heard reports of the city's banning this one million dollars and getting police departments cross the area to come down and pick these protesters why the expense if the occupy wall street movement is going to continue to remain is very very clear now we did see heavy and a show of force just thirty two not too much confrontation with protesters and the police behaved in a much more way than they had in previous times when we saw the excessive use of tear gas flash bang grenades and all kinds of other non-lethal weapons now i'm here with one of the protesters he's been here from the start what's your sense now why is he allowing everyone to come out of the city realizes the last. say it actually drove more and more people into the streets so by actually stepping back in small ways it makes it seem a little bit less scary the mayor has actually said that she will allow us to continue to have general assemblies in the plaza as long as we get to not camp out
2:14 am
the hours of ten pm till six in the morning right now we still have our silly airy can still park so you know for the most part the same which we were before two weeks ago except with a lot less tear gas and a lot less injured people we are here to stay and you know every hour every day this occupation is here to stay and we're not going away well you heard the man himself the occupation is here to stay and we had our tea we'll be covering it for you this is newspeak outnumber porting for our tea in downtown oakland. we're getting details of police clearing out protest camps in new york they've been ordered to leave zuccotti park which has some incumbent. reports. some testers authorities say they can return once the kid. two months since the occupy movement began. is warning
2:15 am
against imposing new sanctions on iran saying the policy has outlived its usefulness the foreign minister's comments. from. reports suggesting tehran could be weapon. has been hearing how further sanctions could find. it's actually we're at a point where we've run out of things to sanction and we're actually looking at things that are going to sanction ourselves there is talk of iran central bank which would effectively take iranian oil off the market and you know it could put the world into economic tailspin there's really there's two paths here either you do the military thing which has been presented as ok you call one off strikes and then you know it's over but in reality and what the u.s. defense secretary recently said is that the best that i would do is send iran's program back by two or three years you would see them rapidly escalate the program
2:16 am
they go into you know manhattan project sort of mentality and pursue a nuclear weapon out right and you know in a lot of respects be driven into that. other alternative to the military action is full scale war which nobody can afford right now then the other path that you have is a diplomatic resolution and that's sort of the path that not a lot of people are willing to talk about but if the end goal is to solve this and not do immense damage to the u.s. and the globe there is going to have to be a day in the future when we're applicator with iran and we actually set up an agreement where iran is not able to develop a nuclear weapons capability they have safeguards on their program and you know we address some of the issues that we have concerns about and we avoid a devastating war. but undercover operations we can already be underway as i see reports online that investigate claims that israel's intelligence agency explosion at the base in iraq killed seventeen people using
2:17 am
a key figure in writing that defense also. cosmic journey of russian rocket is sending it to the three it's going to the international space station after successfully launched on monday these and other stories do you think it's. the world's most notorious military prison is still open for business it's not repeated pledges by president obama to get it closed down it's ten years since george w. bush opened the facility. of torture. best because of reports that jason the old believes his country is betraying the principles it promotes. were were hypocrites were you this is going to straighten has actually fought every p.b.s. corpus case that has appeared in d.c. . so you know we're we're we're very good at preaching but not practicing
2:18 am
what we're preaching so it's integrity it's credibility credibility is is the number one issue right. there is a lot of rhetoric there's a lot of promises that have been made it's political this came down to deal making with senators such as john mccain lindsey graham where they would not get behind certain policies that the president wanted to push forward unless there were promises made that first of all pantano would remain open that military commissions would continue i think that for the most part it's fear mongering and it's politically charged. also other world news now at this hour nuclear contamination in japan is proving to be worse than expected radioactive material in parts of the northeast exceeding levels say for falling is the first detail the estimate of the pollution caused by the fukushima disaster in march production in the contaminated

the hundreds of radio stations in russia is one that seemingly out of this world instead of music or news these broadcasts would mysterious voices and noises which have left radio things us baffled sensible person off has been tuning in. the sound has been gripping the imagination of radio spotters worldwide for over three decades. the u.v.b. seventy six also known as the buzzer. its first aroused my interest because it is so strange personally i think it's a legacy device that's been left over from the late seventy's or eighty's. the military operations at the time it's original as it's been got. the sea is going going like this since the start whenever that was were sometimes the water stops in
2:21 am
a male robotic like voice lists names and numbers in russian. families as the soviet union's and now russia's contact with spies or evil civilizations from other worlds. yes life has been a radio fan since his childhood he's also had his share of the wiser but his explanation of his purpose is much more down to earth than the first yes but with this sort of connection is extremely reliable it will shut down in case of a large nuclear explosion but only for a few hours it's not dependent on anything that's why it's so widely used today by the army the idea is pretty simple a new t.v. radio station sends out the buzzer which is received by other army bases by stopping the buzzer operators signals that a command called of the letters and numbers is about to be broadcast and when the
2:22 am
transmission is complete the buzzer turns on again you just last said moscow's radio spot in community nor were the signal used to come from a base outside of the capital but this is what we saw there and this man is the only living sor we could find. on the spot he used to work at the beast and still lives in a village nearby. this used to be one of the best units in the country but two years ago we received an order to shut it down we were told it consumed too much energy there is also another similar unit it still operates could it be that the legendary buzzer used to be out of this building and with the signal coming from now. who won't be able to find any signs of that mysterious transamerica here because the equipment was literally ripped out of the walls and floors of the building when the before. things are actually still here john or would be
2:23 am
less then three leading back to me two thousand and nine. but the sound. over it's coming from. the radio ether almost as if it always has always will a simple technology that's conquered the minds of thousands. of. moscow. strange stuff there back to one of our top stories of police a reporter with a gun clearing out and see corporate protesting camps in new york and also claims that pepper sprays being used let's talk to our tease reporter who's in new york for us no marina how this has been removed what's going on inside this removal the evacuation of wall street headquarters in new york city began approximately one
2:24 am
am tuesday morning in new york city hundreds of police officers. dressed in riot gear descended on to security park in lower manhattan and presented the protesters with letters telling them that they had to temporarily park while the police would remove all their tents now the police claimed that this was due to health concerns and the park needed to be inspected also on scene was city police commissioner ray kelly is the first time from what i know from what's been reported at least commissioner of new york city has actually been to one of these events and circumstances where the police confronts the occupy wall street activist now as you mentioned leading into this story there have been reports that spray has been used on some of the activists that were used to leave zuccotti park
2:25 am
police began moving in closer to the park somehow to this left and others sat down. many were arrested there's also been reports that. machine was used against the activists that remained in zuccotti park in addition it's been very hard for the class and for members of the media to get to zuccotti park because as this began new york city police department they had put that arcades up all around zuccotti park to prevent the media or anybody else from possibly causing is not at least what is being reported and that's the way it's being perceived if there is also as i mentioned reports of arrests reports of conflict between some police officers an activist there were you had you have images tents that have been up in zuccotti park with these activists have been sleeping. tents been torn down by police officers and being literally carried out of the park with activists
2:26 am
saying these are homes are not even explaining to us why were you doing this now of course this is coming just two days ahead of a massive protest that's being planned to take place here in new york city on the seventeenth that was more than two months anniversary of the occupy wall street protesters. protests and organizers putting out already press releases indicating that plans are in place for activists to to shut down or attempt to shut down the new york stock exchange so as you can imagine new york city officials probably want to avoid any kind of event such as this one and maybe that's why this week was made early in the morning ok marina will have to keep us informed throughout the a lot of pictures there from zuccotti park of the. protests ok well that
2:27 am
makes all of this and with you that. hello and welcome to the business update top officials from the world's leading gas exporting countries are meeting in doha between them they hold more than two thirds of the world's gas reserves and there are some it's aimed at balancing the interests of both producers and consumers and of the discussion of similar topics is underway here in moscow at the end all gas of russia for this is our g.'s more and of course there is both events good morning where you know what's not delegates of both talks. well one of the main points today is of course pricing it's no secret that european countries are on happy right now with russia's gas from because it links import rates to oil prices costing them billion euro losses because an increase in price they had it just consumers and the world's largest gas producer seems to be down for a compromise now considering giving an additional level of support in the station
2:28 am
of less than five percent while of course the ministers are expected to call for ever so ration to oil price linked all right now but the energy minister. who's there right now outlined some of his main concerns when it comes to gas. all of this book with a first look it's the supremacy of the long term. strategy and will stick to it in future secondly it's the principle of linking natural gas prices to oil prices we believe that natural gas. crude because natural gas me. and this should be priced in by the market can you put them with the biggest energy demand to skyrocket there right now so it's crucial for russia to play an important role to meet the demand of major consumers and of course essential for gas so our it out all the differences. are enough thank you very much looking forward to hearing more from you and that perhaps not the business bulletin join me in less
